Friday Fragments?

I discovered this Friday Fragments thingy today over on Georgie's blog. I like it. My brain is pretty fragmented right now, so it's perfect. Here goes.

Oh, speaking of Georgie, have you bloggers all signed up for the Secret Santa Soiree? It's loads of fun and you should sign up. Go now, I'll wait.

Everyone back? Okey-dokey then, onto the next bit of fragmentedwisdom insanity.

I didn't "Back the Bid" and apparently, neither did the IOC voters. Chicago 2016 ain't gonna happen. Although I was less than thrilled about the prospect of the Olympics in Chicago, I was strangely bummed when the Windy City was bumped in the first round.

Uhm...October?! Wheretheheck did you come from?! I'm pretty sure last time I checked it was June.

It's cold here. Don't get me wrong. I absolutely LOVE fall; it's my favorite season. But this? This is late November weather. Mother Nature, we are not amused.

I love three-paycheck months. They're a sort of freak of the Gregorian Calendar. You go merrily on your way with a paycheck twice a month, then suddenly that fifth Friday sneaks in there. Woo-Hoo!

We're going to check out Halloween costumes for the little monsters this weekend.
SS#1 wants to be whatever 9 y/o boys are into these days some sort of Ninja Warrior/Transformer/X-Men character. The Manimal wants to be a bad policeman lion fireman with a pink jacket.

Moving on.

Am I crazy for planning SS#1's potential summer activities in October?

That was a rhetorical question.

In the spirit of Halloween costumes, I'll leave you with this visual fragment. It's a blurry version of the monsters, aka "Captain Underpants and Sock Fighter Boy".

And just for the record, those underwear and socks were clean when they started this little fantasy game.

**Postscript Fragment--Whattheheck is up with Blogger! UGH!

We love three paycheck months in our home too! Although, the third paycheck always ends up being for the first of the coming month anyway.

Cute sock/underwear costumes!

Happy (late) FF!

Looks like those two know how to have fun!

Yeah, I suppose that while the money would be nice for the city, it would really be tough on the citizens.

I'm in for the SSS!! :)

Thanks for joining up this week! You're welcome any time :)

I'd write more, but the Packer game is on, and my elbows are killing me from clapping so hard earlier; man, I need to settle down!
